EXCEL!

 

Hi guys,

Well, we’ve all had a wonderful Thanksgiving day and hopefully the rest of the week will be just as good. 

Monday we’ll all return to school. So, try to get in your minds right now that you are going to do even better than you already have done. The second half of this semester is coming in January for most of us and some of us will have different classes. Don’t stop working hard now. Oh no! I want you to EXCEL! 

Just in case you don’t know what the word excel means, I’ll tell you: Excel means to be superior or better at, to outdo or to do extremely well. I know that all of you can do that because you already have a good study habit and are making great grades.

So, let’s just keep it up. If you got a “B” on that last test, make an “A” on the  next test. That is what a person who excels does. He or she gets better and better. So, remember when you get back to school this coming Monday, go to the head of the class.

CHECKIN’ IN

 

disabled kid reading

Hi Guys,

Well, I had to check in with you and with your parents right now. For many of you, school has been in since September 5, 2017; so that’s about 2-1/2 to 3 weeks. How’s it going? Are you getting your study habits back? Do you have all of your school supplies? Are you practicing your favorite sport? Are you still reading? Is your library card current?

Remember, reading opens the world to you. I have so much to share with you and your parents this semester. I want to hear from you and your parents some good tips that I can share on this blog and I want to hear of all your accomplishments in school. Maybe you can share a picture with me so that I can feature it on my blog. 

What you do can inspire some other students to do their best. So, here’s to a great school year!

CATCHIN’ UP!

BABIES LOVE TO READ AND BE READ TO

Hi Guys,

It’s me, Jenny! WHEW! It has been a whirlwind of activity with me for the last few months. I mean, I really missed you guys. But today, I am glad to say that I can catch up with all of you and find out what you are doing. 

I sure hope school is going well. Can you believe that there are only about 4 or 5 weeks left until Summer vacation? Okay. I can hear a lot of you shouting YAYYYYY!! And there is nothing wrong with wishing for Summer vacation. Besides you all deserve it. You’ve worked so hard in school getting those A’s and B’s. So you deserve a break.

I just want you to remember one thing: While you are planning your summer always make plans to read 20 minutes a day. Yep, read every day. And please if you have little brothers and sisters or little nieces and nephews or just little kids in the neighborhood, please get a book and read to them, as well. Babies even love to hear your voices as you read Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham or my books, A Surprise for Junior, Loony the Loon and the Littered Lake or Junior Rabbit Learns About Christmas. Believe me guys, when you read you learn about this world and all the wonderful things in it.

Oops, I gotta go. I am writing another book to be published later this year. I sure hope you guys will read my books. Talk to you later,

Jenny

BOOK SIGNING PHOTOS

Hi Guys,

Well, I had a wonderful time at my book signing and reading Junior Rabbit Learns About Christmas at an elementary school in a suburb of Detroit. You can see some of the pics below. I had a wonderful time and so did the children. In case you don’t know it, that’s me in the elf outfit. We had loads of fun.  I told you that reading is a lot of fun especially when you get together with others and have a reading party. I want you to see how much fun I had and enjoy the pictures. Have a wonderful and fun and safe Merry Christmas and a beautiful New Year.

RAISING AN AUTISTIC CHILD

Hello guys,

Remember a few blog posts back when I said that I wanted you to do good in school and befriend a special needs classmate or student at your schools? Well, if you are able with Mom and or Dad to join me tonight at 8:00 p.m. you’ll hear me interview a very special couple who I know personally. They are Semaj and Shatara Coleman, my son and daughter-in-law as they discuss raising an autistic child.  So, I sure hope that you can all join me tonight on the show. Feel free to call in and comment, too.  

Whatever you do, please befriend a special needs classmate or student at your school. They are the best friends you can have and they will love being your friend, too.

Here’s the link to tonight’s show:

DON’T STOP NOW!

Reading does indeed open up the world to you. So don’t stop reading now. If you go to the library to read, take time and read in your bedroom, or in the living room in the big chair, keep on reading. Don’t stop reading now, keep it up.  Look at some of my friends reading and participating in school. They know the importance of reading.

GOOD STUDY HABITS ARE FOR WINNERS!

getting-organized

Hi Guys,

Well, it’s been a few weeks since school has started and I am sure that there has been some homework and projects given to you already. I just have a question. Has it been hard to get back into the study mode since the summer is over? I can understand that. Here’s a couple of tips to get you back into the good habits you had in school that got you those high test scores and good grades at card markings:

  1. When you get home from school, if you have any homework or reading do it immediately, because you’ve been in school and study mode already for the day. Keep it up and soon, you’ll be finished with your work and can relax and do other things.
  2. Keep a list of your school work on a white board or a cork board in your room or even on the refrigerator at home. That way you won’t forget important work that has to be turned in.
  3. Make going to the library part of your week or weekend. It keeps your mind working well and you will be at the right place to get the answers you need.
  4. You’re not too young for this next tip: Keep a list of all of your daily activities and check them off as you complete them.  (get ready for school the night before, make your lunch and put in the fridge, get your instrument and backpack ready and put them where you won’t forget them in the morning; get your gym clothing and shoes cleaned and ready for  physical ed.)  All of these things will get you back into the right mode of studying and organization. And you can’t help but be a winner! Talk to you later.
